In case you're wondering, I was recently diagnosed with high cholesterol, and prescribed Lipitor. Hence my username. I am looking for some support here.

i took that once for a few days. couldnt shit at all. stopped taking it. switched to simvastin and my legs would swell if i sat at the computer too long. now i am trying to control my cholesterol by taking omega-3 flax oil supplements and eating foods high in omega-3's. plus drinking whey protein shakes. (it's supposed to help)

[@1001706,OhKelsey] I never said it was remarkable. Just looking for some similar people.

[@1033905,AtorvaSTatin] Will most of your posts be about cholesterol?
AtorvaSTatin · 26-30, F
[@1001706,OhKelsey] is that not a common topic here?
I’m a diabetic and was needing to lower my cholesterol as well. Atorvastatin totally turned my cholesterol around.

When I saw your name, I miss my old job at pharmacy... sorry I feel like that. Just follow what your doctor told you to do. See you around.

You know you got my support! 🤗 Lipitor helped me a lot....along with a good diet.

Well you will find some here with me
Please be careful with the meds. They might be okay short-term. You'll most likely find greater success in getting your cholesterol down with diet. Becoming vegetarian and eating lots of green, leafy vegetables and whole fruits and veggies, will do the trick. Also, get regular exercise. Diet and aerobic exercise will trump any medications. You can reverse your condition with those. You can only compensate for it and cover it up with pills.

[@176592,PhoenixPhail] thank you for the advice
[@1033905,AtorvaSTatin] You're welcome. 🤗
